my 42" slick looked the other way around nose first lol was like a great white leaping into the air and then smashing onto the top of the water..... sadly almost got my plane low enough before the battery shorted out ( i could hear the motor cutting in and out) and then it died.... RIP 42" SLICK.... HELLOOOO NEW 51" slick

One word. Telemetry.

It's about $80 to mod a Tx with FrSky and Telemetry. It only has to save your plane once to be a good investment, when you're hovering and your Tx beeps warning that you only have a 30 seconds of battery left.

Geez, I know it!

I wish I had the funds to fly 3D. I would only be a able to afford one airframe.

Or is it bad piloting...

I bet I could build a 48-72" 3D EPP plane that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from a crunchy 3D plane... true airfoil, glossy covering, the whole shebang. But you will be able to tell the difference when you hit the ground :P

Maybe later... unless somebody pays me up-front

I somewhat doubt it. EPP is just too flexible. By the time you get it stiffened to the level of a good balsa plane, you've added so much weight that it's not gonna fly like one. That's why all the best 3D planes out there are ... you guessed it... balsa.
